The governor hopes to win over opponents in the legislature who fear the plan is too expensive for ratepayers.

"I think people are still so skittish over the deregulation vote that many of them cast many years ago that had the unintended consequence of the big spike in energy costs and they want to make sure they are guarded against that happening," he says.

O'Malley's administration believes the cost increase will drop after the first year wind power is used if the cost of fossil fuels continues to rise.
